The Indian food, Putu Mayam is a snack eaten with fresh grated coconut and brown sugar or gula Melaka. It is also known as string hoppers and is eaten cold. This sticky noodle like snack is made with pressing the dough through a mould and steamed. It is a very popular snack and sold in many places. Most of us would have eaten it before.

Lately I was introduced by a friend to a stall in Little India that sells this traditional white delicacy together with the unusual brown ones. It is made with adapting the ingredient, biji sawi which many people claim to be healthier as it helps to regulate cholesterol and blood sugar level.

Updated on November 2010 : All the hawker stalls have stopped operation.

During my last makan outing at 127 Food Court on Burma Road I was recommended to try out their chu char stall, Anson Park Seafood. It has been around for a few years but it was only recently that we went to try out the food. Most of the table was having their signature dish of Curry Fish Head and the Nam Yue Bak and I was enticed by the looks of.

This Curry Fish Head is the milk-based curry rather than the usual santan (coconut milk). The curry is not really spicy yet very flavorful with lots of lady fingers, tomatoes, onions and mint leaves, served hot in a claypot. The taste of the curry is more towards Indian Curry with the usage of curry leaves.
